FATHER AND DAUGHTER: A PORTRAITURE FROM THE LIFE ... Translated by Mary Howitt. Philadelphia: T. B. Peterson and Brothers, 306 Chestnut Street, n.d. [1858?]. Octavo, pp. [1-2] 3-348 [349-352: ads], flyleaves at front and rear, original decorated brown cloth stamped in gold and blind, yellow endpapers printed with publisher's ads. First U.S. edition. Four pages of publisher's ads in back, the last of which solicits subscriptions to the new enlarged PETERSON'S MAGAZINE coming in 1859. Bremer's introduction here is dated "April, 1858." Possibly the first edition in English, the UK edition (also the Howitt translation from the Swedish) was published in 1859. Bremer visited the U.S. for two years in the early 1850s and became a feminist. In Philadelphia she had Sara Josepha Hale as her guide, and heard Lucretia Mott speak. Cloth worn at corners and spine ends, scattered foxing to text block, but a tight, good to very good copy with bright spine stamping. OCLC reports no copies. However, there are copies at AAS, NYPL, DLC and presumably elsewhere. A presentable copy of an uncommon book. (#129197).

Price: $45.00
